Recep Tayyip Erdoğan sometimes reminds me of Makarios in the early 60s, trying to push forth with some desperately needed fundamental changes while keeping the military/militaristic idiots at bay. Not an easy thing to do, especially when their most revered jewel is Cyprus & the current constitution bestowing upon them the obligation to do whatever necessary, as they perceive it, to preserve the unity of the state.
Cyprus is inextricably linked to Turkey and its need to adopt her first ever democratic constitution. Spend 5% of your time understanding Turkish developments & that is the amount of understanding you will have about the solution to Cyprus.
I am very hopeful about Cyprus and all her legitimate inhabitants.
